Taliban delegation visits Iran to confer on Afghanistan's situation


KABUL: The Taliban deputy head Mullah Baradar arrived in Iran at the head of a delegation on Tuesday to confer on the peace process with the host country, the group’s spokesman confirmed in a statement. 
Baradar’s delegation is scheduled to discuss and exchange views on the relations between the two countries, Afghan refugees’ situation in Iran, and the current political and security situation in Afghanistan and the region with Iranian officials, Taliban Spokesman Naeem Wardak added. 
This visit comes a day after Afghan President Ashraf Ghani stated that a new chapter was opened in the relations between Kabul and Washington, and now Afghanistan is fundamentally considered by the United States as a collaborator.
US and Iran have tense and hostile relations in the region, something that is seen to affect the Afghan peace process negatively.
